Full text of "The Entomologist's Monthly Magazine"

Google 



This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search 

Google's mission is to organize the world's information and to make it universally accessible and useful. Google Book Search helps readers 
discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. You can search through the full text of this book on the web

CHARLES GOLDING BARRETT. 



Charles QoldiDg Barrett was bom at Colyton, Devon, on May 5th, 
1836, the eon of an officer in the Inland Uevenue Department. He 
was at first intended for an engineer, and to that end worked for two 
years as nn apprentice at the Coalbrookdale Ironworks, Salop ; but in 
1S56 he entered the Civil Service, his long and honourable career 
therein being closed by bis retirement, from nearly the highest rank 
in his Department, in April, 189d. 

As a boy be was very fondof collecting objects of Natural History, 
and he appears to have commenced the serious study of our native 
Lepidf^tera at about his twentieth year. We find him in August, 
1 856, sendii^ to the then newly established Entomologist's Weekly 
Intelligencer (vol. i, p. 166) a record of the occurrence of Ooliat eduta 
at Forest Hill ; and at p. 179 of the same volume is a note by him on 
Va«e*ta e-albwm in Shropshire, in which the marked differences be- 
tween the summer and autumn broods are, we believe, referred to for 
the first time. An interesting light is thrown on his energetic methods 
of working in those early days by a note ia the "Zoologist" (p. 6215), 
in which he relates that, after collecting all night in West Wickham 
Wood, and lying down towards sunrise for a nap under a fence, he 
was awakened by the gambols of a merry dancing party of Fumea 
nitidella ^, which had selected his face as their ballroom ! 

His removal from London to Dublin in 1659 resulted in the 
thorough working, in company with several other energetic collectors, 
of Howth and other productive localities nesr that city; and fais 
Boioum there was signalized by the addition by him to our fauna of 
such notable species as Lithotia eaniola, Dianthacia eapiophila, the 
remarkable form of Z). luteago described by Henry Doubleday ax D. 
harrettii, and the beautiful Oeleehia tarquiniella. A full and very 
interesting list of his Irish captures appears in the " Zoologist " for 
1861 (p. 7799 et teg.). 

Haslentere, where Mr. Barrett was stationed in 1862, soon became 
classic ground to our Lepidopterists from his continuous captures of 
rare and interesting species, among which Madopa lalicalit deserves 
a passing notice. Being transferred to Norwich in 1868, the Norfolk 
Fens and the " Breck " and coast sands afforded a new and most in- 
teresting field to his untiring energy, and many notes on their insect 



.Xiooj^le 



treoaurea nre tr> be foiinil in our pagee. l<Vom 1875 to 1884 we find 
him locateil at Pembroke, in an entirely unworked district of great 
promise, hsrdlj' however fulfilled ; though our collectiout owe most of 
their reprasentntives of Diatemia Uleralii and Eitpacilia mut»eifimu 
to hie fortunate discovery of the habitat and habits of these very 
rare species. 

After a Londnn appointment of not long duration, in 1886 be was 
transferred to King's Lynn, where be continued to make obaerTationt 
and captures of the greatest int«rest, among which the rirtua] dw- 
covery, in conjunction with Mr. E. A. Atmore, of the fine StipitiecU 
extentaria as a British species may be specially noted. In 1880 be 
received an important and respunsible post in South London, where, 
at Nunhead and subsequently at Peckham Bye, the remainder of his 
busy and active life was passed. 

From the first establishment of our Magazine in 1864 ftlr. 
Barrett was a constant contributor to our pages ; in fact, his name 
appears in our '' Index " attached to no fewer than 830 separate en- 
tries, the last appearing so recently as December, 1904. Among theae 
contributions the "Notes on British Tortrices," which appeared at 
intervals between 1872 and 18iH), and embody the records of ouuiy 
additions to our Fauna, are the most important, and mark an era in 
our knowledge of this interesting series of moths. His chief work, 
" The Lepidoptera of the British Islands," was begun in 1892, and 
the ninth volume, which exteJida to the commencement of the OroMftffe*, 
was issued last year. This section was completed in the parts since 
published, and it is with great satisfaction that we learn that the 
material exists to carry the work to the end of the Tortrieina, the 
group which our lamented colleague had made so completely his own. 
In the preface to Vol. 1 he remarks — " My aim is, not only to furnish 
original and accurate descriptions of the perfect insects, and the most 
reliable descriptions obtainable of their larvs and pupas, but also tiuch 
particulars of their habits and ways, drawn from personal experience 
and the most reliable records, as shall present them to the reader as 
creatures which enjoy their lives, and fill their allotted positions before 
they take a more permanent place in the museum or the cabinet." 

This is the keynote of the book, which is too well known and 
esteemed by all Lepidopterists to need further comment, and it exhibits 
the author in his strongest point, as essentially a field naturalist of 
the highest type. It was never the good fortune of the present writer 
to enjoy the company of Mr. Barrett in the field, but the many ento- 
mologists who have had that privilege unanimously bear witness to his 
wonderful powers of work, as well as lo his resourcefulness, patience 
and acumen in tracking the moat obscure and retiring species to their 



«•■] 27 

IiabitaL The candour e,nA generosity with which he placed hii rut 
»torea of entomologirBl knowledge at the diB|>oeal of all bis friends, 
and bia genial, energetic and hearty manner, made him a delightful 
eompanioD ; nor will hii nnstinted liberntity in supplying our collec- 
tioDB with the nre and intereBtiitj; apecies he bo frequently net with 
be readily forgotten. 

Id his public no lesB than in hii private life, Hr. Barrett com- 
manded the eiteem and affection of all who knew him ; and we can 
here merely allude to the active and diBiDlereBted part in the Geld of 
reliipon and temperance which be took throughout hiB life. 

Since Jnne, 1880, he was one of the moat valued membera of our 
Editorial staff, and bis decease ieavee a roid that will long be felt 
by his colteagnes. tn IS84 he became a Fellow of tbe Entomological 
Society, and was a Vice-President in 1901; and in 1892 he waa 
President of the South London Entomological Society. 

For some time past the robu«t health that had for so long stood 
him in good stead had been failing, and lie succumbed to an acute 
attack of bronchitis, passing away peacefully on the morning of De- 
cember llth, 1904. His remain! are interred at Forest Hill Cemetery. 
We understand that his extensive Collections of British, European, 
and South African Leptdoptera — the last receired from a sister in 
Cape Colony, and tbe subject of some interesting notes in our pagea 
—are to be disposed of. 

We are greatly indebted to Mr. C. G. Barrett, of King's Lynn, 
the eldest son of our departed colleague, to bis danghter, Misa L. 
Barrett, and to tbe courtesy of tbe editor of the " Civilian," for 
material assistance in preparing this notice. —J. J. W. 



EDTTOEIAL. 
Wo bare great pleasure in announcing that Mr. Gin. T. Pobbitt, 
P.L.S., has consented to fill the vacancy on our staff caused by the 
death of Mr. C. G. Babbktt. Mr. Pobbitt has for many years past 
been one of our most esteemed contributors on the Order Leptdoptera, 
and more recently on the Neitroptwa and Triehoptera ; and bis assist-

DRAOOK-FLT HUNIIMQ IN EASTERN 8W1TZKELAND. 

BT KICNHBTH J. HOKTOH, P.K.8. 

(Coneludtd from pagt 4). 

The weather had now become aettled and very hot, and the 8th 
oaw us back for the day to near Ziirich, our destination being the 
Oerlibon Biet, including the Eiver Olatt, and our special quarry the 
Oompkitue and Somatoehlora Aavomaeulafa. Taking the train to 
Olattbrugg, our course led us along the banka of the Glatt fi-r a 
atretch, then over the Biet to Oerlikon Station. The Glatt is here a 
slow stream with corrected couree. Ou either side of it stretch 
tracts of marshy meadow with little clumps of wood, un ideal locality 
for \europtera. Perhaps in no other place did we see so many 
dragon-flies. It is do eiaggeration to say that Caloptifryx tplenderu 
moBt have existed in tboueands on tbe short reach of the river which 
we traversed. I have hardly ever witnesaed a prettier sight than 
these multitudes of lovely dragon-flies. A female never took flight 
without having half-a-dozen or so male attendants in her train, and 
these curious little processions were constantly flittirig about tbu 
river. Not less numerous, but less conspicuous, was Platymemia 
jwnnijiM. Anax imperator was present in fair numbers, each patrolling 
his tpecial section steadily, except when a wandering Oontphua 
provoked the tyrant to a chase. A worn ? of A. partkenope was 
taken; it had probably flown from the Metmenbasler See. The 
Qomphids were not common and were difficult to catch, the difficulty 
being enhanced in no small d^ree by the relentless attacks of Tabani

which swarmed in the long herbage aluii){ the river bank. One of 
the first Heen was Opkiogomphun terpentinut, the moet beautiful of the 
European GomphidB, nnd quite different from the othera on account 
of ita exquisite green coloration. The apeciee was not at all frequent, 
and it waa the moBt warj, only one being secured by Dr. Ria. Omjr- 
ehogomphui forcipa/ux was not quite bo rare, and a few good males 
were caught, while Oomphm vulgatUnmut, <{\i\te unexpectedly, put in 
ao appearance. One or two Platetrum deprettunt were noticed at a 
amall lateral stream. But Somatoehlora fiavomaeulata outnumbered 
all the other larger dragon-flies; every corner alon<( the EDarginii of 
the wood, and almost every small clump of bushes gave shelter to a <J 
which was not as a rule difficult of capture. One of the striking 
features of the Olatt marshes was Popilio maekaon, which was flying 
about in splendid examples of the secood brood. 

Our last excursion in the low country was to the Hauaer See a 
pretty lake near Oasingen (about 1360 feet s. m.), and distant fram 
Hheinau about 5^ miles. The walk was sufficiently long in the 
intense beat. When we were atill some distance from the lake, a few 
Orthetrum brunntmm appeared flying over the road. Entering the 
shaded paths iu the woods surrounding the lake, we found them alive 
with Limenitu tybilla. 1 have never seen it before in such numbers, 
but they were nearly alt much worn and we had no time to spare to 
select them. So we left them aloue, as we alao did Apatwra trig, 
which ODce or twice tempted us to linger, and we very soon reached 
the lake. This ia one of the localities where the great prize Bpitheea 
bimaeulata is to be found, but we were of course too late for it. 
Amongst the first species seen were Somatochlora metalliaa flying 
along the margin, and a tittle farther on one or two Lihellula fulva, 
together with a g Sgrnpetrum aanguineum. But we hastened on to 
the corner for Leucorrhinia, only to find that in this early season we 
were too late. Z. albtfront was still present and a few pairs were 
taken, but of L. peclortlia only one (^ was aeen and taken by 
Dr. Ris, who handed it over to me with his usual generosity, which 
extended to everything of any value that waa found. L. eaudalU, 
which also occurs here, was evidently quite over. The usual com- 
plement of small dragon-flies was obtained, including Fyrrkotovta 
tmellum, and on going round to the other side of the lake we found 
Oomphut pulehellut common, but worn. Orthetrum cancellatum was 
again present, but 1 found this species one of the most difficult of all 
to catch. Leaving the lake proper, a little marshy meadow was 
viaited for Lettet dryat, of which we got a few, and the same locality

produced a few jEtokna grandU. By thin time the woodlnod piUbs 
were quite gloomy, and stealing along tbem ^. oi/anaa waa taken. 
Ad unusual capture on the way home was O. ainea flying along the 
road. 

On the following morning we reluctantly bade adieu to our good 
friends at Uheinau and proceeded to Cbur, whence we drove to 
Lenzerbeide, a health resort, iiituated between C^burwalden and 
Tiefencastel, at an elevation of about 4800 feet. Here we remained 
until July 18tb. It looked an excellent locality for Neuroptera, 
poB»e»«ing a fine lake, the Heidsee, and an abundance of running 
waters. The weather which had been hot and cloodless in the low 
country, changed when we reached the Alps, and for a day or two 
thunder storms and heavy rain prevailed to a d^ree that was rather 
depreaeing. In the fitful gleams of sunshine we saw few dragon- 
flies ; odd examples of Somatochlora, a ? iS. aipestrit being taken, 
Orthetrum ooBruleioena, Libellula quadrimaoulata, LeueorrMnia dubia, 
and Enallagma eyathigerum. These gave very little promise of what 
wo* in store for us. Finally, after a terrific storm, the morning 
broke cool and cloudless, giving promise of a fine day. The forenoon 
will long be remembered. A stretch of bt^gy land on the side of the 
Btream, just after it leaves the lake, was found to be alive with 
Sotnatoeklora, and here during the next few days beautiful series of 
S. alpeitrU and S. arctica were caught. On the quiet portion of a 
lateral streamlet and at the lake a few S. metallica were found, but 
here this species was scarcer than the other two. jEtchna juneea 
proved to be common also, and Cordulegailfr annulatui was seen 
during the last two days, but it was still rare,aud I failed to get more 
than one <^. 

Our next move wae over the Julier Pass to 8ilvap)ana. We had 
no difficulty in making uut, from the excellent maps with which 
Dr. Kis had provided us, where the most likely localities wore to be 
found. CroBstng to the other side of the Silvaplana See and going 
through the woods in the direction of Oampfer, we soon found the 
LeJ Nur, and here and on the marshes surrounding it we discovered 
once more the haunts of the lovely alpine Cordulinea. Somatochlora 
netalUca was particularly abundant and an easy capture as it hawked 
round the mat^ins of the lake. An interesting form of Caloptetyx 
iplendena occurred rarely here, very similar to that which I found at 
i>igQe,and much closer to the southern form than the one occurring 
about Zurich. ^. juncea was exceedingly common, and was noticed 
even at the Hannen See (7000 feet), the only dragon-fly seen there.

still more productive than Lej Nair waa another amaller lake at a 
somewhat lower level near Camprer. S. areiica and alpettrit were not 
taken there, although they may quite well occur, but S. metalliea, 
L. dubia, ^. juneea, Agrion puella and hagtulatum, and £!. ct/aiktgmm 
(the last two being bIbo found at Lej Nair) were all more or less 
abondant. In the woods Sympetrum meridionale and S. ttriolatwn 
were frequently seen ; and one day near Silvaplana I believe I s»w 
P. depretium. The only species which should have been found aod 
was not, was JE. ecerulea, wbich was taken by Mr. McLachlan at the 
StaatEer See. It must surely be much rarer in the Alps than in the 
boreal parts of Europe. 

At Silvapl&na our dragon-fly hunting ended. We went on to 
Maloja and Chiavenna on the 25th, and after visiting Como proceeded 
over the Spliigeu to Tbusie, thence home by way of Zurich and Basel. 
Excepting a Cordulid noticed flying about the pier at Varenna aod a 
few examples of Sympetrvm in the Val Bregaglia and elsewhere, no 
more dragoD-flies were seen. 

The total number of species observed on our journey waa 46. 
The first rush of dragon-fly life was over before we reached Switzer- 
land. Brachytron pratonte bad absolutely disappeared, the Libellula* 
and Leucorrhiniag were practically over, while the time of Sympetntim 
and Lettei had not yet fully come. One or two additional apeciea 
might have been obtained by visiting special localities, but we were 
well content with the results which could scarcely have been achieved 
if we had not bad the good fortune to be under such experienced aud 
painstaking guidance. The following is a complete list of the species 
seen:—

In the Ent. Mo. Mag., 1896, p. 261, Mr. Cbampion predicts the 
eventual discovery of Sihanus mereafor, Fauv., in Britain. Re baa 
recently identified some epeeimens which I received from Mr. B. A. 
Atmore as this species. It may easily be recof^Dised from 8. turina- 
meniie, L., by the small size of the temples, which are two-thirds of 
the diameter of the eyes in the latter species, whereas they are only 
one-fifth in S. meroafor. 

A dichotomouB table of the genus will he found in the article 
cited above. My specimens were found in n bakery at King's Lynn,

This Bpeciee is abundant, and widely diBtributed among isolated 
plants of AcnthyllU tmgaeanthoidea, from vbi'ch I have 8inc*e bred 
it ; there would appear to be at leaBt two broods. Mr. Eaton first 
met with it in 1894. 

It iB closely alb'ed to eapHwlla, Z., but difFen in the outward 
widening of the fascia. 

The genna Aprvaerifma is described as having in the forewings 
" 6 sometimes out of 7 near base " (Meyr., Butck.). This definition 
would exclude aeanthglUdit (and perhaps other species) in which 6 
is emitted from ihe stalk of 7 and 8 near their furcation, moreover in 
BOtne specimens {e. g., 5854) 19 is sometimes connate with (U+7-f 8) 
or even stalked with them — thus, in this species at least, vein 9 is 
variable, being emitted from the radius before the end of the cell, 
connate with, or out of (6+7+8). In the bindwings 2 and 3 are 
connate from tbe end of the cubitus above wbich the cell is open ; 
part of the discoidal occurs above^lower media, emitting 5 angularly ; 
6 and 7 are stalked from radius to near apei. At first one would 
have felt inclined to make this species the type of a new genus, but 
it seems wiser to sligbly extend the definition of .if/)rooer«ma to in- 
clude such species as are obviously in a plastic condition, the variation 
being individual, not special.

I am again ab|p to record a good number of interesting species 
taken in the County during the past seaaon. For these 1 am indebted 
to the following eorreiipond<;tits, who have sent me lista of tbe rarer 
species taken by them and the localities in which they occurred. The 
Kev. A. P. Waller records raptures at Hemley near Woodbridge, 
Mewn'. H. Lingnoml at Needhani Market and Dunwieb, Claude 
Morley at Barham and Blakenham, A. E. Qibbe at Orford. and Dr. 
Crowfoot near Beccles. Mrs. Mann, of Bungay, haa sent me a full 
list of all the speciea met with by her in 19(H at Bungay and Flixton, 
and has also sent a list of the rarer apeciea which had been taken by 
her in previous years, thus adding considerably to the Cuunty List. 
Both Mr. Walter and Mrs. Mann have made |>reat use of their moth 
traps, and hnve taken many good indects in them. 

Mr. 0, fl. Barrett, bb usual, tiBs most kindly confirmed or deter- 
mined most of the Micros, Mr. Waller having sent him all that 
seemed doubtful; while be has also determined various species for 
Mrs. Manu,

(p. SOB) that Jfetaailk) umme. Cram., a common Indian butterSy, often settled 
upon bllen leaTet and helped to conceal itself by falling partly on one side. Dr. 
Diley was anxious to see whether there was among allied butterflies any tendency 
to (ucb a habit upon which natural seleclion might work. Careful watching Satgm 
teunU s&Usfled us that it settles upon thp ground " in three motiona " — (1) Ibe 
wings are brougbt together over the back ; [2) the fore-wings are drawn between 
the'hind-wings, BO a« to be for the most part concealed i (8) the whole intact it 
thrown orer to one aide to tlie extent of 3U°, 4if, or even sometimea &u°. Tbey 
appeared to go over to right or left indifferently. 

Subsequently 1 imprisoned a number of butterfliet in a large pasteboard box 
coTered with a piece of glass. Under these oondiliona 1 obserred tliat sometimea 
the third of the above deacribed motiona precedes the eecond. The iniecta asaume

Tn Boim; casen iiiBnj of the wupg Imd left Iho communily. and itilh lliem pre-

to have been dead Hima time. Sot do I think there remained iiiiEci«nt warmth in 
the eeaeon to iloTelop an; of the pupie. 

On completing the digging out of llie iiearlj empty comb of Vetpa germaaiea 
on September 2!)lh. nine days afler the communil; had been doctrojed, I obaerred 
a beetle on the wing, whieh I reeogniied aa Melacat, hoToring round the trunk of 
an onb aloto to the waaps' nest. 1 knocked it down witli mj hat and captured it, 
a S . Uf brother then obaerred a ? on the aame tree. She was aesrching the bark 
with her oripo«itor and pauaed apparuiitl; to lay, though we did not aee any eggi, 
for the bark contained deep crerioea in which preaumably tliey would be hidden if 
then: were any. 'i'bia f my brother captured. 

On October jtli, on rciiailing the spot, 1 obaerred another ? Metaevt reiting 
on the Mime tree on whioii the flrat was taken Qio daya prerioualy. 

She did not appear to be layiny or making any movement. The day waa raid. 
Upon examination she appeared lo me to hnre laid iicr cgga already for the 
abdomen was rather small and contracted. She died two daya alVrwarde without 
laying in confineuiunt. 

It aeema likely tliat both those $ a laid at least a portion of tliair egtct on this 
tree, i.e., on living bark. Their cluae proiimity to the neat of Vapa gemtaniea would 
not be enough to eatablisli any connection between tlioui for, iOU yards away, was a 
neat of r«^ na/jrarw, in which JfefoMni was subsequently found, and whence the 
three beetles in question may hare oome. — Qsoboi A. Cbawshat, Leighton

Ttlratoma fttBgorum, F., at Sherwood FOrttL^ln the third week of October

joins the tree. All were found on this year's growth of fungi -, the most diligent 
•eareh, however, completely failed in finding any trace of cither larva or pupa in the

Limolellii ttnetoffata, FM., at Sgde. -Tba Minariik bualiea on the front at 
Ryde, I. W., oonlained thia species in tiie greatest profusion, aa I mu enabled lo 
obserro from September 2ath to October Oth this jaar, though a cursory eiamina- 
tjon of the same plant in limilar situations at Cowea on October Sth failed to reTeai 
a single indiiidnal. At the former locality the inaect eould be counted in its 
thousand* ; a thick hedge half a mile long was often corered with them, but their 
colour so well assimilated with that of their pabulum that they were quite incon- 
■picuouB. They often, I noticed, congregnte in groups of eight or ten, and were on 
seieral occjsions found in cop. ; one spider's web, an inoh and half in diameter, 
contained elcTen emmples. They appear to prefer the base of the outermost, 
though not the highest, shoots, and By fretly in the sunshine. On the later date, 
after a biting northerly broeie, their numbers were less, though their litality 
appeared to hare been but very slightly impaired. Hr. K. A. Butler, who Snt 
dcterted it in Britain (ef. Snt. Mo. Mag., 1902, p. 215), telle me that it was abso- 
lutely swarming where he found it, and that he eipecls it oooure in most places 
where tamarisk grows — though I huTC failed to find it in Suffolk. — Olafdb Uoblbt, 
Monks' Soham, Suffolk i December, lOOl. 

Seiitoetro' fureatu; Vill„ at duttlenden Sought. — Mr. Uorice, when kindly 
looking oTer my saw-flies a short time ago, detected a specimen of this rare insect, 
taken by me at Chattenden Boughs in June, 1896, but overlooked until now. As 
its present oocurrenoe in Britain has been doubted by him in his " Betp Notes " be 
asked me to record it. Uy specimen is a male. An aiample (male) of the other 
species {geaihatue, CKr.) was taken by Mr. Moriee himaelf thia apring when col* 
Iccting with me on hlay 26th. It was silting on the hedge in the valley below my 
house where so many rare insects have occurred. — A. J. Chitti, Faversbam i

Limaophilut elegant in the I»le of Man.— In a boi of Triehoplera recently sent 
to me for determination by Dr. B. T. Cassal, and taken by him in the Isle of Man 
during last season, I was delighted to see three specimens (all males) of the rare 
Limaopiilut elegant. Dr. Cassal had taken them near Ballaugh, in the northern 
part of the Island, during the first fortnight in June. Old recorded localities for 
the species are the New Forest and Delamere Forest, but in recent years it seems 
onlv to hare been taken at Rannoch, and there rcrj sparingly. Tte occurrence in the

preeent from the next, tpeciee, but I believe they are two 
distiDCt species, and that both occur iu Britain. 

S. tihaTopkylli Meig. : a small common species, which often occurs 
in abundance on the flowers of Umbellifera. 

H. nigriplantU Stann. : the only place where I have found this is 
Snailwell in Cambridgeshire, where it used to be not un- 
common from June to September on a wooden sluice down 
which water was running.. Col. Terbury has taken one 
specimen at Portbcawl in Olamorgan, and Mr. C. G. Lamb 
one at Wells in Somerset. 

H. nigripennig Fall. ; a small blackish species, with a rather long 
proboscis, very simitar to Orthoehile, but its proboscis is not 
nearly so long as that of Orthoehile. Common from Corn- 
wall to the Highlands of Scotland. 

H. chryfotygo$ Wied. : this ^ery pretty and very distinct speciei 
waa abundant at Wickeu in July, 1875, even occurring in 
ditches close to "The Five Miles from Anywhere." I have 
since taken it at Chippenham Fen, and even on a window in 
this house. 

S. plagiatu* Lw. : I introduced thia species aa British on a speci- 
men taken at Abbey Wood in Kent on July 24th, 1870, and 
a few specimens have since occurred at Upware and Tudden- 
bam near here. 

B. fulvicaudit Walk. : tbia atill remains recorded as British from 
only a aingle male found near Bristol, and taken probably 
at least 70 years ago ; that is, however, the specimen from 
which the species was originally described, ^ It has since 
been recorded as not uncommon in Germany, and 1 possess 
aeveral specimens from Mecklenburg, while Eowarz baa 
recorded it from Hungary. 
S. atrovireni Lw. ; I caught one male at Footscray in Kent on 
July 7tb, 1869, and Dr. D. Sharp took a female in the New 
Foreat in June, 1902. 
H. pareilamellatui Macq. : I took a few specimens at Blackboys

J. W. DOUGLAS. 



John Williah DoroLAS, the son of David Douglu, of Tranent, 
near Ediiibnrgb, was bom at Pntney on November 16tb, 1814. He 
was educated at a private school, remaining there until he was 
fifteen, when he suBtained a very serioua injury, the result of 
a thoughtlesB practical johe of one of his school f el Iowa. He waa 
returning borne on November 5th with a pocket full of crackers, 
which his schoolfellow set alight; thej exploded and burnt bis tbigh 
BO severely ibat he had to keep hia bed for two years. During this 
time he turned bis attention to Botany, drawing the epecimens be 
collected with great fncility, and becoming bo keen on his subject, 
that when convalescent he applied for and obtained employment at 
Kew in order that he might have the benefit of the best botanical 
teat-bers. He was at Eew only for a few years, aa his father, with the 
help of Lady de Grey's influence, obtained for him a situation in the 
Customs House, where he rose to a high position, retiring at tbe age 
of seventy, after more than fifty years' service. Mr. Qladstone before 
introducing bis bill dealing witb duties on light wines sent him on 
a continental tour to report on the various grape cultures, and on bis 
return personally thanked him, and gave him a special Treasury grant 
of £100. 

The heavy cicatrix formed by bis severe burn necessitated 
numerous operations throughout bis life, and tbe enforced leiBure 
enabled him to gain a proficiency in German and French, which 
proved of extreme value to bim, both in his official and Entomological 
capacities. 

He married in 1843, residing at first at Camberwel), but after- 
wards for many years he lived at Lee and Lewisham. 

He began collecting insects when at Eew, and published bis first 
paper in tbe Entomological Magazine for 1887, entitled, '' Handom 
Thoughts on Entomology." For many years his attention was chiefly 
directed towards tbe Lepidoptera, although he publiafacd papers on 
Ooleoptera and other Orders. Most of his early writings on Lepid- 
optera, &c., are t<J be found in the pages of tbe Entomologist's 
Weekly Intelligencer, and many of tbe younger generation of Ento-

mologistB must look back nitfa gratitnde to bis kindneii &nd BBsist- 
ance. "The World of Insects, a Guide to ita 'Wonders," wm 
publisbed in 186G, and he rendered very important BBsistance in the 
production of Stainton's " Natural History of the Tineins," in which 
his name appears as a coadjutor. Another, and perhaps the work 
by which his name will be best remembered, was published by the 
Bay Society in 1865, "The British Hemiptera, Vol I, Hemipiera- 
Seteroptera." In this be was a joint author with tbe late John 
Scott. It opened the eyes of British Entomologists to the Inrge field 
of little known forms which existed in this interesting Ordfr, and 
Douglas and Scott's "British Hemiptera" will always be regarded aa 
a classical work in this country. At the time it was written the 
Bemiptera of Britain were practically uiiworked, and all Entomo- 
logists owe a great debt of gratitude to the Authors of the " British 
Hemiptera " for the excellent foundation which they laid, and also to 
Dr. Fieber, of Vienna, for the assistance he rendered in determining 
many of tbe unknown species. Additions and corrections to this 
book were from time to time published in the Entomologist's Monthly 
Magazine, of which he became an Editor in LS74, and to which for 
many years he was a constant contributor. In the early days of the 
Entomological Society he was a very active member. He joined the 
Society in 1845, became a Member of the Council in 1846, Secretary 
from 1849 to 18S6, and President in 1861. He retired from the Society 
in 1862, but rejoined it in 1676, continuing as a Fellow to his death. 
The writer of this will always have an affectionate memory of tbe kind- 
ness of the deceased to bimself ; be often had occasion to consult 
him on questions connected with tbe determination of specimens, and 
always met with the greatest kindness. On one occasion he borrowed 
the type specimen of a Capsid, the identity of which he had called io 
question, and whilst in his possession, one of his children finding a 
nice looking little box, put some pens into it and shook them up, with 
tbe natural result that tbe specimen was broken to atoms. Any one 
can imagine the writer's feelings when he had to go and confess what 
had happened ; but tbe situation was accepted in the kindest way, 
and without a touch of reproach. For the particulars of the early 
life of the deceased we are indebted to hie son, Mr. Charles D. 
Douglas. 

It is many years since J. W. Douglas took an active part in 
Entomology, and many of the younger Entomologists of to-day may 
hardly realize how much be did for tbeir Science ; but those who 
knew bim feel that another link with the past, and an important one, 
has been broken.— E. 8.

TBTSOPIUM BF.P AT LKIOHTON BDZZABD. 
BI THE BET. QBOBOE A- 0Bi.W8HA.T, H.A., F.B B. 

A black form of HVtropium baa occurred here tbia Bummer Id 
8Dm<« numbers, and I take the preeent o|)portunitf of briefly recording 
tbe firat appearance in tbia district, bo far aB [ am aware, of any 
member of the genua. 

Tt will be well to leave the question of its identity open for tbe 
present. 

On comparing my beetle with the two long seriea of Teiropittm 
in the British Museum I remarked that it was different in general 
appearance from theae apeeies. At the same time, in considera* 
ion of tbe variation in form, coloration, puctuation, and pubeecence, 
to which the different membera of the genus aeem liable, I took 
the neareat deacription I could find to my inaect, a very brief 
one by Oanglbauer (Best. Tab. der Enrop. Col.), and sent the beetle 
out to Coleopteriata aa a Tetropiam, nearest to T. eattaneum, L., var. 
Jvlcratam, F. At tbe same lime not feeling aatiafied with this, viewed 
in tbe light of my long series of nearly 200 individuala preaenting no 
appreciable variation in their external atructure and coloration, and, 
thinking that my beetle might be a different species from any I bad 
Been, I referred it to M. Bedel, who informed me that Weiae had 
lately described a new apeeies of Tefroptum, and that it agreed with 
tbe specimen I had sent him. I hnve accordingly communicated with 
Herr Weise. Mr. Atmore's two recorded apecimena (Ent. Mo. Mag., 
April, 1S04), taken prior to mine, and a hitherto unrecorded specimen, 
taken at Elefield, Osfordshire, by Mr. J. J. Walker, shortly after 
mine (June 26tb, 1906) appear to me, judging from their exterual 
structure and coloration, to be identical with tbe Leigbton Buzzard 
form. 

Subsequently hearing ihat Dr. Sharp is engaged in investigating 
tbe genua, I have placed alt my material at his dispoaal, confident that 
I leave tbe matter in able hands. I hope, in a forthcoming issue of 
the Magazine, to deal, at some length, with tbe capture and life biatory 
of tbe imago and larva, by which time it aeema probable that Dr. 
Sharp will have determined what it is. 

I am indebted to Mr. W. Holland for informing me that my first 
specimen belonged to the genus Tetroptum.

[In reference to Mr. CrawBhay's note I abould like to say th»t 
great difficulty exists as to the Bpeciea of Tefropium both in Britnin 
and on the continent. I am endeavounng to elucidate thif, and should 
like to be able to examine the specimens of the genus that may exist 
in British collections. I hare before mo specimens of Tefropium taken 
near Manchester in 1866, and I think I can say with a fair confidence 
that we have two, if not three, species in England. Weise has just 
described a T. gabrieli from SwitEerland, Germany, Ac. Mr. Oraw- 
shay's insect is either T. gabrieli, Weise, or a closely allied form. 
If the second alternative prove to be correct I propose to call the 
Leighton form T. erawihayi. — D. Sharp.] 

\T. gahrieU,yiei»e (Deutsche eut. Zeitachr., 1905, p. 136), from the 
LowerBngadine(TaraBp), Tyrol, and Silesia, is said to differ from 2*. 
futeum, F., and T. luridum, L. (^ caataneum, L.), in having the frons 
somewhat convex and not canaliculate. 1 have taken various epeci- 
mens of what I suppose to be T.ftucum in the Kngadine (at Guarda, 
near Tarasp) and on the Simplon ; some of Ibcae have the froos 
canaliculate, and in others the groove is wanting. — G, C. C]

J. Sahlberg [Acta Soc. Pro Fauna et Flora Fennica, xii, 3, pp. 
22, 23 (1»00)] separates Bnris T-album into two specioB, S. T-albun, 
L, and B. mnrtulut, Sablb. These two forms occur in Britain, and 
were described by Stephens [Mand., iv, p. 10 (L831)]. They may be 
separated thus:— 

Larger and more elongkle, the eljtral intentices irreguUrlj uniseriato-panolata,

are sometimeB found together in France, B.pilittriata aloaeoccumag 
in Algeria. Stephens, it may be noted (blanual, p. 216), subeequentlj 
treated the lai^er insect as a "fine" form of S. T-atbum. Uia name 
pilUlriata appears to hare been oTerlooked by Sahlberg and others, 
and it is not quoted as a synonym in the last European Catalogue. 
The Linneean description applies better to S. T-albitm than it does to 
B.piliitriata, and there is no valid reason for tranepoaing the namea, 
if the two forms are to be treated as distinct.

ZSUaOPHOSd FLAVICOLLIS, Uusd., A2ID 1T8 VARIETIES. 
BX O. U. CHAUPIOV, F.Z.B. 

There are variouB diacrepancies in the published descriptions of 
this species, mainly due to Marsbam's work not having been con- 
sulted. Canon Fowler, for instance (Col. British Islands, iv, p. 280), 
says that it has the posterior femora fuscous, whereas in the insect 
described by Marsham, and figured by Stephens, the legs are wholly 
reddish -yellow. Weise, too (Naturg. Ins. Deutscht., vi, p. 58), makes 
the satiie mistake, and bis variety atutratit (femoribua posticis rufo- 
flaviB),to which all the British specimens I have seen belong, ia simply 
typical Z.Jtavieollis, Marah. The common form on the continent, at 
least in mountainoua districts, has the posterior femora black or 
blackish. According to Bodel (Faune Col. Basain t^eine, v, p. 224), 
the two varieties occur together in France; but this is not always 
the case, as a large number of specimens recently captured by myself 
at Lautaret, Hautes Alpes, aa well aa many othera taken several years 
ago at Mendel, in the Austrian Tyrol, have the hind femora black. 
The number of pale joints at the base of the antennee, again, is 
variable (three in British apecimcDs, aa stated by Stephens, four in 
the continental, according to Weise), as is also the ahape of the tooth- 
like prominence at the aidea of the prothorax, it being sharply denti- 
form in some of the continental examples. Weise describes yet 
another variety, with the elytra red dish -yellow below the shoulders 
(he notes a simitar form of Z. lubspinoaa), but this I have not seen. 
Our British insect, for specimens of which most of ua are indebted 
to Mr. Harwood of Colcheater, ia really very like Z. icutellarit, Suffr., 
but differs from that species in having the bead, ezcept in front, and

the ecutelluiu block, and the head iteelf more coarsely and more irre- 
gularly punctate. Z. teutallarit la attached to Populus nigra, and 
should occur in Gngiaod. Z. HaoioollU I have only seeu on Populut

BT I. ItKIUICE, B.A., F.B 8. 

Two specimens of this insect were recently sent me For determi- 
nation by Mr. Alfred Sii-h of Chiswick, who (in company with his 
brother, Mr. Leonard Sich) took them in the middle of Saai near 
Hailsham, in Sueeei. It dues not seem to have been autfaentieally 
recorrled from Britain before, bo far as I know ; earlier records were 
based on the species now known a* atmorielh. The unicolorous 
species of Arggresthia present difGcultiea which are probably not yet 
fully understood ; and therefore when visiting Merton Qal), I took 
the opportunity to compare these specimens with Lord Walsingham's 
continental material, and to get bis opinion on them. Lord Walsing- 
ham and Mr. J. H. Durrant both agreed with me that they were 
referab'c to the true illuminaiella, and their identity may therefore 
be taken aa eatablishod. 

The species is markedly amaller and more yellowish than atmori- 
ella, but is especially iMstinguished from it by the much paler hind- 
wings ; atmoriella feeds on larch, illuminatella on pine (species 
doubtful, or perhaps more than one). Ocnerottoma piniariella, which 
might be confused with it, is abundantly distinct structurally by the 
reduced neuration and shorter palpi, and ii greyer. Mr. Sich reports 
that the specimens were beaten from Pintu (spei-iea nut ascertained) 
in a wood which also included larch And other trees ; the insect was 
common, but was regarded at the time an being 0. piniariella, from 
which, on subsequent examination, he found it to be distinct. 1 hope 
that the discoverer wilt now complete his interesting record by findiag 
the larva and correctly identifying the food-plant. 

I may add tbat the description in my " Handbook " is drawn 
from the true illuminatella (not from atmoriella, to which Staudinger 
in his Catalogue refers it), but the localities cited are erroneoas.

AN ADDITION TO THE BEITISU LIST OF DIPTESA. 

BT W WESCaE, F.R.H.a. ftc 

In Jul/, 1902, 1 found a Bingle specimen of the geuua UUdia at 
Bircliinyton, Kent ; this I placed in my cabinet without identification 
of the species. In August of this yeftr (1905J I obtained a number 
on some weeds, with three pairs in cop., two of which [ gave to the 
British Museum, where Mr. E. E. Aueten has identified them as 
Ulidia nigripennu, Lw., and where they may be seen in the British 
Collection. 

There are only two species in Mr. Verrall's list, and this will 
malie a third. The fact of my fiudine; it twice at an interval of three 
yenrs shows that it is without doubt an established inhabitant of these 
islands, and not a wind hlown insect from the continent, and it has 
probably hitherto escaped notice owing to its small size.

but I never succeeded in taking it, and indeed saw it only once or 
twice. Pyramei* cardui, var. kerikawi, McCoy, and Jutumia eellida. 
Fab., are both very plentiful in waste opes places, especially in early 
summer, when P. ttea, Kab., is also fairly common, though lees so 
than in some other Australian localities that I have visited. Its spiny 
larva may be easily found on the formidable stinging- nettle, Urlica 
incua. The Satyrida are perhaps more in evidence than any other 
group of butterflies in the Sydney district. Several closely allied

boldly marhed H. euphemia, WeBtw., frequents open rocky places. 
Melanitit leda; L., being almoBt or quite on the southern limit of its 
distribution, is but rarely met with, and the little sober-looking 
Ypihimii aretotu. Fab., though (olerahly common, is somewhat local in 
open gneaj places. The most oonspicuons of the group is the beau- 
tiful brown and fulvous Tuiphtme {Epinepkile) abeona, Don., which may 
be found more or less plentifully throughout the summer in damp 
gullies and watercourses where the food-plant of its larra, the "cutting- 
grass," Oladium tp. abounds {ef. Mathew, Trans. Ent. Soc., 1S8S, p. 141). 
It has a quiet floating flight, and is a very striking object as it sits with 
expanded wings on the bright green Cladium. Ueieronympha metvpe. 
Fab., Xenica achanta, Don., and X. klugit, Gu^r., are all three abun- 
dant in the " bush " surrounding Sydney, the first- mentioned appearing 
early in October, though the females may be found in quite good 
condition as late as February, long after the other sex has quite 
disappeared. In the lllawarra district are found the pretty Hetero- 
nympka bankti, Leach, and the very remarkable Zf. mirifiea, Butler, of 
which the male {S. diggUti, Miskin), so closely resembles, in its brown 
and fulvous coloration, the same sex of if. merope as to he quite in- 
distinguishable from it on the wing ; while the female, broadly banded 
with white on a dark sooty-brown ground-colour, is quite unlike any 
other Australian butterfly. 

Of the numerous " Blues " 1 will here only allude to the beautiful 
genus Ogyrii, three or four species of which, including the finest of 
all, 0. gmoveva. Hew., have been taken in the district by Mr. Water- 
house, hut I hare only met with one of them, O. abrota, Westw. ; the 
larvs feed in companies on species of Loranthut growing on high 
Euealyptua trees. The very pretty silvery-blue lalmetrnt eoagoret, 
Don., is abundant, especially in the National Park, where the larvn 
often strip the twigs of the " black wattle " (dcada decurretu) quite 
bare, and the pupn may be gathered from the low bushes almost like 
currants. Both larvs and pupe are always attended, and very effi- 
ciently guarded, by multitudes of ants of two or three species (some 
of which bite and ating pretty severely), for the sake of a sticky and 
rather sickly -smelling secretion which they exude (ef. Mathew, Trans. 
Ent. Soc., I»lj9, p. 153). The darker- coloured I. ietimu, Hew., is less 
common than its congener, but is not rare at Ryde on the Parramatta 
Birer, and is similarly guarded by ants in its earlier stages, which are 
also passed on the Aeaoia deeurrmi.

Amoug the Pierida I maj mention Deliax nigrina. Fab , which is 
■ometimea not uncommcQ, but usually flies round the taller trees, too 
high to be readily caught 1 the contrast between the white upper 
surface and the richly coloured black, yellow, and scarlet under-side, 
giFe the butterfly a very stHkiag aspect on the wing. Belenoii Java, 
Sparrm. {teutonia. Fab.) is here by far the most abundant species of 
its family, and may be found plentifully throughout the summer ou 
some large bushes of the so-called " Native Orange " {Oapparit nobilia) 
in the Botanical Gardens. In some years this butterfly multiplies to 
an inordinate extent in the interior of New South Wales, and, like 
other species of the group, collects in vast migratory flights. Such a 
migration occurred on November 25th, 1903, and several succeeding 
days, when absolute clouds of white butterflies, apparently all of this 
species, were reported from various inland localities, travelling before 
a hot north-west wind ; and thousands were to be seen crossing Port 
Jaclcaon, mostly from north to south. At the National Park on the 
28tb it was excessively abundant, and towards evening clusters of 
twenty or thirty, consisting of both sexes in about equal numbers, 
could be seen " camped " under the lee of almost every bush. The 
butterflies had practically all disappeared by the SOth. 

The Hnperiidx include a good many species, some of considerable 
beauty and interest, and one or two (as Netroeoryne ropanda, Feld.) 
of fairly large size. 

As may be expected from so favourable a situation, the moths 
are very numerous in species a« well as individuals, but I can here 
allude to only a very tgvr, such as the conspicuous day-flying species 
of Agarittu, one nf which, A. glycine, Lewin, is very plentiful and 
sometimes destructive in the larva state to the vines. The larval cases 
of the Pagehidm are of great variety of construction, and are very 
numerous and conspicuous in the " bush " as well as in the gardens, 
where the large cases of the " bag-worm," Mefura elongaia, Saund., 
Bometimes four inches in length, are among the first objects of their 
kind to attract the attention of the new comer. The large and hand- 
some green larva of Antheraa eucalypti, Scott, which reminds one 
forcibly of that of the South European Saturnia pyri, is often common 
on the young gum-trees, and has also adopted as a food-plant the 
South American Schiniu molle, extensively planted as a shade tree 
along the suburban roads. One of the most objectionable insects in 
the " bush " is the larva of the Limacodid moth, Doratifera vulnerant, 
Lewin, which is ofteo found in very undesinible profusion on young

Sucalyptut foliage \a early eummer. U is a ptout, bright green, slug- 
like creature varied witb yellow, with roae-coloured tuberclea, each 
baring a circular serieH of motile etiff haira or spines. The slightest 
touch of these haira causes a sensatioa like that of the sting of a 
nettle, only worse, which bood Bubsidea, but remains perceptible for 
several hours afterwards. 

Another caterpillar posBeased of very marked urticating powerB 
is the enormous larva of the line Bombycid moth Chelepleryx eolUn, 
Gray, which is found, but rather apanuglj, on the foliage of Smco- 
Igptiu at Botany Bay and elsewhere. Thia larva attaina to Dearly the 
size of that of AeJterontta atropo*, and is of a dull dark green colour 
witb several bright yellow tubercles on each segment, bearing faactclea 
of stiff reddish hairs, which sting very severely when touched. The 
cocoon, which is not unlike that of Odonettis potatoria on a large 
scale, both in texture and colour, is often found (but usually empty) 
under loose bark, and is also an undesirable object to handle, as the 
stinging hairs of the larva are freely interwoven into its substance. 

Among the Mymenoptera the ants are very much in evidence, es- 
pecially the smalt evil-smelling speciee of Crematogaater, which awann 
under loose bark to the exclusion of more desirable insecta, and the 
large and formidable stinging speciea of the genua JfyrmacM. These 
ants, which are much dreaded and disliked by the inhabitants of New 
South Wales, are known by them under the names of "bulldogs," 
" iuchmen " (in allusion to their length), " jumpers," " soldiers," and 
"joeys ;" the last name being applied especially to the bright red !£. 
gttlota, Fab., which is the most fierce and aggressive of them all, and 
is endowed with the most severe and painful sting. It makes large 
subterranean nests in dry sandy places, often at the foot of a particii> 
larly inviting looking bush or tree, and I have more than once been 
very disagreeably surprised by finding a string of these savage 
creatures running up the leg of my trousers, having unwittingly 
put my foot into one of these nests. This ant, as well as the larger 
and stouter, but leas active black M.forfieata, Tab., and the smaller 
M. piloiula, Sm. (black with bright yellow mandibles), is constantly 
found ranging about a foliage, and all three frequently appear in the 
umbrella while beating, and necessitate a good look-out being kept in 
order to avoid being stung. A large harmless brown species of 0am' 
ponotut, which lives in strong colonies under lugs and loose bark, is 
known as the " sugar-ant," and is the host of the interesting Brentbid

tturabera in the Dest of tfaia apecies. The numerouB Foesoret include 
several bandaome epeciee of MuHlla, which occur under bark, aa well 
as walking about iu aandy epota ; aud the curious genua 'I'hi/nnut, eo 
characteriatic of the AuBtralian region, ia repreaeuted iu the vicinity 
of Sydney by a very large number of species, which vary enormously 
in size and appearance. Some of the malea of the larger forms are 
handsome and conspicuous insects of somewhat waap-like appearance, 
which, when caught, go through the motions of stlngiug with great 
vigour and persistency, though tbey are of course perfectly harmless, 
which is by no means the case with the apterous females. These 
insects frequent flowers, especially the attractive blossoms of the 
Angophora cordifolia (of which shrub I shall have much to say later 
on), and are then almost invariably found paired, the females of some 
of the species being ludicrously small in comparison with their part- 
ners. Allied to ihese is Diamma bicolor, Westw., the female of which 
is perhaps the worst stinging insect found about Sydney, or indeed in 
Australia; it is a creature not unlike a stoutly built wingless ant 
about an inch in length, deep shining chrome-green in colour with 
coral-red legs ; it is occasionally found running actively in hot dry 
placea, and requires great caution and dexterity in capture. The 
Angopkora blossoms are frequented iu their season by several large 
and somewhat formidable looking Sj/menopiera of the genera Scolia, 
AAitpa, Priocnemit, &c. ; but these are by no means aggressive, and 
are not to be feared while collecting. Among the Tenthredinida are ' 

Beveral species of the curious genus Perga, including several fine and 
highly-coloured insects ; their iarvie are found feeding in companies 
on the foliage of the young gum trees, often stripping the boughs 
quite bare, and when disturbed, raising their heads suddenly all 
together in a very comical way. A small but very beautiful metallic- 
green "carpenter bee," Lealit bomhtfliformia, Sm., passes ita early stages 
in the dry pithy flower-stalks of the quaint "grass trees" (.2(in- 
tkorriasa), and the perfect insect may be taken flying about them in 
early summer. 

One of the moat striking features of the Entomology of Sydney, 
as soon as the hot weather fairly seta in towards the end of October, 
is the abundance of the Oicadat, or as they are invariably miscalled, 
" locusta." Every suburban garden or cluster of trees then resounds 
with their shrill, and (at times) somewhat annoying stridulation, and 
in some of the wooded gullies the din they make is often positively 
deafening. Comparatively very few of them survive beyond the end 
of January ; in some years, as in 1908 (it is said every third year),

they occur in much larger uumbera than usual. Their acreechnig 
noiae can then be beard on board shtp anywhere in the harbour, and 
the lower parts of the tree-trunka are crowded with the curioiw 
horny-looking empty and dry larva-skins from which the perfect 
insects have escaped. Id hot weather they are very active, and not 
always easy to secure, flying off the tree-trunks readily when 
approached. Several of the species are of large size, as the green 
Cj/clockila amlralatim, Amyot, perhaps the commonest of all; the 
reddiah-brown Thopha aaeeala, Amyot, the ''Double Drummer "of 
the Sydney boys, ao called from the large development of tie 
" opercula " on the under-side of the body of the ^S i and Ptaltoda 
marens. Germ., whose black body, powdered with small patches of 
white hairs, suggests its popular name of "The Floury Miller." The 
sweet and rather pleasantly- flavoured white secretion, much appreciated 
by the boys under the name of " manna," is produced by much smaller 
insects of the order Homoplera {Eurgmela spp.), rather gaily marked 
with deep madder-brown, red, and white, which live in companies in 
all stages of development on the young shoots of the Euealgptut 
shrubs. The Hemiptera are very numerously represented in apecies, 
aud include some very curious and handsome forma, but few, if any, 
of large size ; the moat singular of all being PliUenemit lemur, a 
small brown and fulvous Coreid bug found not rarely under loose dry 
bark, with the largely developed hind tibis furulshcd with a dense 
growth of hair, so as to resemble a bottle-brush. Several active and 
brightly -coloured Ueduviids are met with in the same situation, as 
well as under stones, and some of them are able to give a severe and 
painful bite if handled without due caution. A fine Banaira occurs 
in stagnant poola, and a apecies of Halohatea ia aaid to be found not 
rarely on the surface of the water in some of the quiet upper reaches 
of the harbour, but I never had an opportunity of looking for it. 

By abaking out the dry leafy branches of Euealyptut, lying on 
the ground in bushy places— a very productive method of collecting, 
eapecially aa regards Coleoptera — a relatively enormous Tbysanopod, 
Jdolothript tpectrum, Haliday (the life-history of which has been ably 
worked out by my friend Mr. W. W. Froggatt, the Government 
Entomologist of New South Wales),* may often be obtained in large 
numbers. Very few, if any. Termite mounds of any size are to be 
seen near Sydney, but a small species of Termet (hdit, Froggatt)

it is also exceediDgly destructive to the woodwork of buildings in the 
aoburbs of Sydney, and has at times wrought great damage in the 
city itself. Moaquitoes and other Diptera, while sufficiently numerous 
and annoying, do not constitute so great a pest as in the more tropical 
regions of Australia, though the "eaiid-flies" in the National Park 
are particularly venomouo, as T have more than once found to my 
coat. The Neuroptera and Oithoptera abound in species and indi- 
viduals, but do not call for further remark, except perhaps the rare 
aad beautiful species of P»i/chopni in the Srst-named Order ; and 
M noticeable feature of the Entomology of the " bush " is the abund* 
ance of large forms of Blnttida (Panetthia, Polgzotteria, &c.). 
These are found under dead leafy boughs, stones, and logs, and 
especially in decayed wood, which they reduce to a loose fibrous 
state; nearly all of them emit a very disagreeable odour, and a 
species of the last -mentioned genus (I believe P._^rifyinea, Walk,) 
is certainly the most evil-smelling insect that 1 have ever encountered. 
It is an apterous species about the size of our familiar kitchen 
cockroach, of a rich glossy reddish-chestnut colour; and when it is 
revealed by turning up a log, it disdains to run away, but, tike the 
skunk, elevates its hinder end from which it protrudes two bright 
orange- CO loured vesicles, and emits an intolerably rank and pene- 
trating odour that can be easily perceived at a distance of three or 
foar yards. For my part, I could never summon up enough resolution 
to handle so repulsive a creature. 

Some very pretty species of Fot^fieulida occur under bark, aod 
a large pallid earwig with largely developed forceps, very nearly allied 
to our Lahidura riparia, L., if indeed not a form of that insect, it 
common in sandy places near the shore. The giant of the tribe, 
AwiioiabU eolotea, De Borm., is not uncommon under damp logs is 
the Illawarra district. Adult examples vary much in size, the largest 
specimens sometimes exceeding two inches in length. When dis- 
turbed it turns up its tail in a very threatening manner, and it ran 
give BO severe a pinch with its anal forceps as to break the skin of 
the finger and draw blood. The busbmen seem to regard it with 
much dread, evidently looking on it as a bind of scorpion. Our 
familiar Forfieula aurieularia, L., does not appear to have reached the 
Sydney district, at any rate I have never seen it there, though it is 
abundant and fully naturalized at Hobart and other places in 
Tasmania.

Nicholas and Benjamin Cooke, 0. S. Oregaon, N. Qreening, 3. B. Hodgkinaon, &e. 
Hr. Johnaon was one of the eleieo who met at my hoaae on February 24th, 1877, 
when the Lancashire and Cheshire Kntomotogical Society waa founded. He alwaya 
took a deep intereat in the Society, and waa a regular attendant at the meetings ) 
and on hia remoTal to Wigan in 1S99 he waa appointed an Honorary Member. 
Ur. Johnson waa thorough in ererything he undertook. I beliere he waa for thirty 
yesrt in the engineering department of the Ueraey Docks and Harbour Board, and 
■inoe hia retirement hia serTicea hare been recognised by a penaion. Mr. Johnson 
leaTea behind him a collection of LtpUoplera, which ia now for tale. Among a 
number of inlereeting apeoimena is one of Sromtae oealUa, which is one of the 
three recorded by Mr. C. 0. Barrett, aa captured near Lirerpool, and I belioTc was

ON THE BEITISH SPECIES OP HYDROTXA, Dst. 
BT PEECY H. QBIHSHAW, F.E.8. 

During the past few months I bare made a detailed study of the 
genua Hydrotaa, wUb the double object of ascertaJuin^ what specieB 
undoubtedly occur in our islanilB, and of writing full and original 
deecriptioiiB of such species, paying especial attention to tbe chstotaiy 
of tbe l^s, a subject wbicb bas bitherto been mucb neglected, tm- 
pecially as regards tbe female sex. At tbe outset I made an appeal 
in this and otber journals for the loan of material, and was favoured 
with a most generous response, receiving many buBdreds of specimeni, 
moat of them in beautiful coodttton. I bad thus the advantage of 
examining an unusually complete representation of tbe genus, and have 
accordingly prepared a detailed account of our native species, with 
drawings of the legs in nearly every case. As the length of such a 
paper, however, woold preclude its publication in a monthly magazine, 
I have deemed it advisable to publish without further delay a short 
preliminary account of the genus, limiting myself to tbe etumtial 
characters only of each species, and reserving the foller details for 
eome later publication, which may possibly take book form. 

Throughout the work I have been largely dependent upon the 
very valuable Monograph published by Herr P. Stein in 1903, entitled 
" Die europ&iscben Arten der Oattung Hydrottaa, Uob.-Desv." (Ter- 
bandl. der k. k. zool.-bot. Qes. Wien, 1903, pp. 286-337), and although 
all the descriptions I have written (with the exception of the females 
of three species) are original and drawn up from apecimens actually 
examined by me, yet in tbe construction of the keys and in the identic 
ficatioD of doubtful Bpecimens I have derived invaluable hints from 
Herr Stein's paper. At the same time I have described tbe females 
of three species which were previonsly unknown, while that of one 
species (JS*. einerea, Dav.) has yet to be discovered. 

Id the description of the leg-bristles I have followed the system 
introduced by me in the present Magazine (I90S, pp. 17!^176), and 
have paid more atteution to such bristles than perhaps other writers, 
believing as I do that fairly easy and reliable characters can be 
founded npon them, especially in the case of the female sex, where 
jdcutiScation in tbe AnthmMfiidtB is usually a matter of some difficulty. 

It DOW remains for me to express my great indebtedness to the 
gentlemeo who have favoured me with tbe loan of specimens. Mr. 
E. E, Austen, of the British Museum, very kindly entrusted me with 
the examination of the specimens under his charge ; the Bev. £. N.

Bloomfield, Meaaru. A. E. J. Carter, C. W. Bale, Wm. Evaas, J. Gordon, 
J. Henderson, J. J. F. X. King, and E. E. Lowe, sent me the whole of 
the examplea in their collections ; Profeaeor L. 0. Miall, of Leeds Uni- 
versity, allowed me the use of a fine set of specimenB from the late 
Dr. K. U. Meade's collection ; Mr. Claude Morlej eubmitted a cod- 
siderable number of apecimene from tbe Ipswich district ; Dr. R. F. 
Scharff sent a very interesting collection of Irish specimens, mostly 
collected and identified by Haliday ; Dr. David Sharp contributed all 
tbe material in the Cambridge Museum collection ; Mr. G. H. Terrall 
moat generoualy lent me a complete and splendid serieB from hia own 
unrivalled collection ; Mr. James Walerston lent me many useful 
Scottish examples; Dr. J. Wood, of Tarrington, sent a splendid set 
of beautifully mounted specimena, chiefly from Herefordshire; and 
lastly, Col. Terbury allowed me the use of all tbe material io bis 
possession. To all these gentlemen I now tender my heartiest thanks 
"Without their most generous aid tbe fallowing account could cer- 
tainly not have been written. 

The genus Bydrofaa, in the male sex, is sharply differentiated 
from tbe rest of the AnihomyitdiB by tbe presence of peculiar teeth 
on the ventral side of tbe front femora, and for tbe purpose of identi- 
fication this character alone is quite sufficient. The female sex, on 
the other baud, is not so easy to distinguish, but thu combination of 
all tbe following characters will readily remove any doubt : — Oalj/ptra 
large, the under teaJe projecting cotuiderablg heyond ike upper, wingt 
with the 6th longitudinal vein rather long, but ceating at a eontiderable 
diitancefrom the margin,fron» always with a pair of deeueiaiing brUilei, 
thorax with four poit-tutural dorgo-central briitlet, and two HemopUural 
briitlet, one of which it at the upper anterior angle and the other at the 
t^er posterior angle, in the majority of tpeciet the front tihiar art 
without brittle!, and lastly, the abdomen it usually unicolorout or 
without dortal stripe, never spotted. 

Thus tbe females of Hydrotaa may be distinguished from other 
Anfhomyiidis by a variety of characters, most of which are found 
singly in other genera. Only in Ophyra, as Stein points out, are the 
whole of these found in combination as in Hydrottea. It may be 
helpful to emphasize these characters in another way, thus : the genera 
of tbe Mydaa group, e. g., Byefodetia, Mydaa, Spilogaster, Ax., only 
rarely possess decussating bristles, and on the other band always 
possess from 3-6 sterno- pleural bristles: those of tbe Anthomyia 
group have only three post-sutural t'orso-central bristles, while tbe 
6th longitudinal vein always reaches the margin of the wing ; Soma'
